Nomination for adminship

Do you approve of my request to renominate you for adminship?  Kaltxì Na'vi!  21:30, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

I am touched by your confidence in me. However, I feel that it is not appropriate that I run for adminship at this time. I do not edit Simple English Wikipedia very much compared to other people, and my situation has not changed since my last request for adminship -- I still have a low mainspace count, the stumbling block of my last request for adminship. I rarely report vandals to WP:VIP, and I only sometimes tag articles for deletion. The only use I would have for adminship would be adding gadgets to preferences, which is low on the priority list for the Wikipedia. Indeed, if I was voting in my own request for adminship, I would probably oppose myself. However, I would be delighted if you could try and persuade me otherwise. Regards, — μ 21:41, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
You never know what could happen until you try.  Kaltxì Na'vi!  21:43, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
The problem is, I've already tried. Why would this time be any different? You'll have to do better than that. — μ 21:51, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
Your last nomination had 12 supports and 11 opposes.  Kaltxì Na'vi!  21:56, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's pretty much 50:50. Not very good odds :|. But feel free to get as many people as you can to Support me anyway! — μ 21:58, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
I am assuming that "as many people as you can to Support me anyway!" means a green flag.  Kaltxì Na'vi!  22:00, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
'fraid not. — μ 22:01, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
Hi, i wanted to tell you that i support your candidacy. Tempaccount5 (talk) 22:02, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
(E/C*2) That last rfa was a long time ago. I think you'll pass, therefore I Support the nomination. Yottie =talk= 22:03, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
You may wish to make some more edits to make your vote counted. — μ 22:02, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
Strong oppose Used a voting template. Goblin 22:19, 9 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Yotty!
What the LOL CENSORED? What is wrong with using a voting template in a talk page?  Kaltxì Na'vi!  22:19, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
 (change conflict)  I do not want to be nominated by someone who swears that much. Please cease and desist. — μ 22:24, Saturday January 9 2010 (UTC)
MC8 knows me and my views on him being an admin and knows that my comment was a joke. Please desist from the profanities also. Goblin 22:21, 9 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!
LMAO, Super Strong oppose. (What's wrong with a little humor.) :) —§ stay (sic)! 03:49, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Service awards

Hi Microchip08, thanks for your comments. I have come up with a new proposal that includes your suggestion. Can you have another look and leave a comment on Wikipedia talk:Service awards - Peterdownunder (talk) 11:46, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

thanks for the note

about the BBC showing. There are several disadvantages to being a United Statesian, one is that we have to wait a month or two to see BBC shows. I gotta know, because I will be asked, was there any music footage from Dixon? The band members all had to sign release forms and want to know. Thanks again. Einar aka 98.23.211.46 (talk) 23:41, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't know; I didn't watch all of it. I just noticed it when I was flicking through the channels. — μ 13:12, Monday February 1 2010 (UTC)

Megabook welcome script

Hello Microchip08,

I really like your megabook script, especially the welcome one. Is it possible if I could also use it at the English Wikipedia? Thanks, Airplaneman talk 20:37, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead! Just remember to attribute with a link to the page you got it from. Many of the scripts are borrowed from English Wikipedia, for example, en:User:Js. There's a list of contributors at the bottom of the Megabook page -- look around their English Wikipedia userpages and you'll probably find a localised version. If you're copying from here, you'll want to change any URLs that say simple.wikipedia.org to en.wikipedia.org. — μ 23:32, Tuesday March 16 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :). You might want to update it, as the welcome template ({{Welcome}}) now has the four tildes included. Right now, I'm getting a double signature. Thanks, Airplaneman 22:56, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
